How big is OSU vs. Iowa?

Big, according to the Chicago Sun Times. Tressel’s downplaying it, oddly.

“What I think we’ll find is in the Big Ten, all these games are big,” Tressel said. “Any thoughts one would have about playing for the national championship would end [with another loss this week], but I don’t know if the Big Ten world would end. Last year, Iowa opened the Big Ten season with a loss to Michigan and ended up being co-champions. Certainly, it’s a big game, and as we begin conference play, it’s always important to get off to a good start.”

They’re all must wins from now on.
